Current District News . . .

Rotary Charities of Traverse City has announced that the Board of Trustees has approved a grant of $250,000 to The Rotary Foundation in support of the End Polio Now Campaign, in response to the challenge grant issued by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. 
The grant was approved at Charities monthly meeting, Wednesday, September 24th.

In making the announcement, Executive Director Marsha Smith said that Rotary Charities’ primary mission is to serve the citizens of our five county service area in Northwest Lower Michigan.  “Because the need to finish the job of polio eradication is a compelling world-wide health challenge, the Trustees feel it is within the Rotary Charities mission of providing leadership to give this grant.”

George Powell, Rotary Club of Traverse City President and Rotary Charities Trustee said, “The Trustees hope that District 6290 can use this leadership grant to challenge Rotary Clubs in our District to raise matching funds.  However, this grant is not contingent upon funds received from the District.”
